I watched some of it, but it looked awful to be quite honest, and it got some awful reviews too. Which really is a shame, because I have loved so many Canadian tv series in the past.. like Degrassi, The Listener and Flashpoint.

Is anyone watching Titanic? It's a new British mini series, and I actually thought it was quite good! It's funny, because Harry didn't sound very American at all, so I looked him up, and it turns out the actor is actually Canadian! lol. That's why he didn't sound American.. most people here can't hear the difference between Canadian and American accents, but I can hear the difference. I've been watching quite a few Canadian tv shows.. lol

hey, they recovered well and won 7 games in a row. Unfortunately they lost the 3 v.s 4 against sweden

pal trulsen actually used to be the same way, starting slow but he was always there in the end

Nice win for the Ottawa Senators tonight. It's not likely they can beat the Rangers, but at least they're giving a good fight. Glad Washington won tonight too. Teams I dislike: NYRangers, Boston, Chicago and Philly. Things not looking good for Pittsburgh and Vancouver.

I have a passionate hate for Ovechkin, so I'm ok with anyone except Washington winning

Here in the desert where the desert dogs won their first Pacific division title and we can't even watch their playoff matches on a decent TV channel other than an "obscure" cable channel, as a local sport reporter quoted.

I do not hate the Leafs actually, I hate the Canucks and the Rangers (for now).

Re: Off Topic Chat Thread

I slightly dislike the Canucks, but am more or less netural.

I didn't hate Ottawa that much until the All-Star Game and their booing of the leafs non stop. Seems like a lot of their fans hate the leafs so I'll give them some hate back

for me it's easily Washington first, and Montreal 2nd for hate though, Detroit would probably be 3rd, Ottawa 4th, and I'm ok with everyone else

Re: Off Topic Chat Thread

I will always cheer a Canadian team over any U.S. team.
But even putting that aside, I don't think I hate any of the Canadian teams

I don't mind Phoenix doing well; they seem to have a very devoted little fan base (and I do mean little, but still). Now that Winnipeg got their team back, I don't feel the need to crap on PHX all the time Though QC needs their team back too

Even though I live in BC, I actually don't care for the Canucks. Looks like they will be out in the first round.

A true Maple Leafs fan would return the hate we receive all the time and support anyone but Ottawa, Vancouver, Calgary etc... the only Canadian team outside the Leafs I can support is Edmonton

yeah but I hate all that stuff, so why would I participate in it? Two "wrongs" don't make a right (not literally "wrong" as in immoral; just I don't agree with it so why would I "do it back to them" like a four-year old?).

I hate all this "rivalry" stuff. Why do players need "hate" to be motivated? Isn't the desire to win enough? Aren't those giant paycheques motivation enough? There can be only one champion, so I don't need to hate my opponent in order to be motivated to beat them. I just need to want victory for myself more than anything else.
